Paper Abstract

Composite silicate glasses containing nanometer-sized metal clusters can be prepared by using ion beams. In particular, metal species can be directly implanted into the glass matrix. Alteratively, low-mass ion beams ca be effectively used for promoting cluster aggregation in surface layers of glass previously doped with metal. Some recent results are presented on these ion-beam-based methodologies for obtaining metal quantum-dot composite glasses, with particular attention to sliver and copper-doped systems.
